Hi, I bought the new HP spectre x360 (Kaby Lake, w023dx) about a month ago.
I use linux as my main OS. I know linux propably isn't top priority, but if someone could help, I'd be very grateful.
Almost everything worked out of the box, with two exceptions:
1. Headphone jack stays mute, altough alsa properly detects the headphones being inserted.
2. The top speakers (Bang & Olufsen)
I tested both on Windows before wiping the whole SSD.
A similar bug existed for previous models: HP spectre x360 on linux, but the solution doesn't work for the newer model.
There also is bug report on bugzilla: HP Spectre x360 (Kabylake) just front speakers work, but after a lot of digging it's still not clear what's really going on.
Even some hints at directions to investigate would be very helpful.
I can run and try everything you need. I really want to correct this bug.
PS: Sorry for posting two bugs at once, but since they may be related (as suggested on bugzilla) I thought it may be beneficial to have the full picture.
